Ceremony Marks Graduation of Hundreds of Quran Memorizers in Turkey


TEHRAN (IQNA) – A ceremony was held in Kayseri province, central Turkey, marking the graduation of hundreds of Quran memorizers.

The country’s Dar al-Ifta organized the event, which was attended by religious leaders and a large number of people.

Addressing the ceremony, Ali Erbas, Chairman of Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet), described the Holy Quran as God’s greatest blessing to mankind.

He said the Holy Book should guide everyone in life and its life-giving teachings should be understood and implemented.

“All of us should make efforts to familiarize ourselves with the meaning of the Quran and implement its teachings in the best possible way,” he added.

Erbas also hailed the growing enthusiasm and interest in Quran recitation and memorization in the country.

A total of 800 Quran memorizers, 514 men and 286 women, received Quran memorization certificates during the ceremony.

Earlier this year, a Diyanet official said nearly 12,000 people in Turkey had memorized the Quran in 2021 and received Quran memorization certificates.

Elsewhere during his trip to Kayseri province, Erbas also addressed students at the University of Kayseri, saying that today’s world needs Islam and its teachings.

He added that the Holy Quran, which is the last holy book sent by God, invites people to justice, protecting freedom and securing peace and that is what the world needs today.
